SUPERQUADRA
Erik van der Weijde

Book with over 160 photographs by Erik van der Weijde of large residential blocks in Brasilia, named Superquadras. Each block, as repeating element in Lucio Costa's master plan for Brazil's new capital, was built within a distinct configuration, with an average of eleven residential buildings raised on pilotis, with a height limit of six floors. Besides 30 of these residential blocks in Brasilia, Van der Weijde also visited a residential complex in Rio de Janeiro, designed by Costa in 1948, which is considered to be forerunner of the Superquadras. Brasilia was inaugurated 50 years ago, on April 21, 1960. Design: Roger Willems and Erik van der Weijde.
